New Video: Mario Kart Wii


It's obvious they've got a long way to go on this game, but the vid shows off two cool things:

1. Dynamic jumps! No longer does the course feel like a magnet holding your kart down, it appears that they've totally reworked the physics of the experience. The clip has Mario doing some freestylin' Excite Truck-style air spins and stuff. Very cool! I often felt like Double Dash was restricting my movement too much, so I'm ready to go wild on Wii.

2. The motorcycles are seen racing alongside karts, so it would appear the difference between the vehicles might be more cosmetic in nature and won't detract from the core experience. Great news.

I've still got my fingers crossed on this one, but the footage looks promising...

Over the years, I've only had 2 incarnations of MK on various systems. Though I think I might actually get the Wii one. Thanks for keeping a nerd informed!

I'm so going to buy this. And you're going down, Albo.
